Damo2986 is an English Let's Player who for the last seven years has brought over 4,400 videos of Let's Plays to over 16,000 subscribers and countless other frequenters of YouTube. His first Let's Play, and possibly his most popular, was known as Let's Play Medieval 2: Total War: The English Campaign. He mainly plays strategy games and RPGs, with occasional exploration-based side LPs and a healthy dose of survival horror mixed in for a treat, which he sometimes supplements with a Picture in Picture element to afford his viewers the luxury of seeing his amusing reactions to heart-stopping events in-game.
After realizing his Medieval 2: Total War campaign was attracting more people than he'd expected, he started up Let's Play Fallout 3 and Let's Play The Sims 3 and World Adventures.
These first three Let's Plays have all had multiple sequels. Medieval 2 Total War was followed by Let's Play Rome: Total War, Let's Play Shogun 2: Total War, Let's Play Medieval 2: Total War: Kingdoms: The Byzantine Campaign, Let's Play Total War: Atilla, Let's Play Medieval 2 Total War: Stainless Steel, and Let's Play Rome 2: Total War.
Let's Play the Sims 3 and World Adventures was followed by Let's Play The Sims 3 Ambitions and Late Night, Let's Play The Sims 3 Generations and Pets, Let's Play The Sims 3 Showtime and Seasons, and Let's Play the Sims 4.
Let's Play Fallout 3 was followed by Let's Play Fallout: New Vegas, and Let's Play Fallout 4.
Other Let's Plays have included: Alan Wake, Half Life 2, Fable 3, Dead Space, Dragon Age: Origins, Dead Space 2, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Mass Effect 3, The Walking Dead Season 1 and 2, Crusader Kings 2, Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic 2, Slender (a Halloween Special), The Witcher 2: Enhanced Edition, Dwarf Fortress, Gone Home, Outlast, The Stanley Parable, Crusader Kings 2: Race for an Empire (the continuation, or "Season 2"), The Wolf Among Us, and of course the much beloved LP of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - running to nearly 500 parts, if you count the sequel in Let's Play The Elder Scrolls V: Dragonborn.
More recent LPs include: Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition; The Last of Us (Remastered); Game of Thrones; Tales From The Borderlands; The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt; Metal Gear Solid V; Until Dawn; Forza 6; The Witcher 3: Hearts and Stone; Darkest Dungeon; Uncharted 4; The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine; Batman; The Walking Dead: A New Frontier; 80 Days; Undertale; and Let's Play Football Manager 2016: Leeds United Challenge.
After his Let's Plays had grown to a substantial amount, he and a fellow subscriber (K1ngLemon) created a forum. This forum is now home to nearly 700 members, who every day discuss, debate, and converse over his videos, as well as take part in Role-Play linked to Damo's LPs.
